Time, Eric’s drawing challenge
Time is the perfect drawing challenge for me right now. Thank you Eric. It’s so perfect because I feel like I’m both running out of time and running into it.
Running out of time for this drawing challenge. Running out of time for holiday days. Running out of time to relax before I get back to work. Running out of time before Robbie has to leave for England again. And Running into time for new projects, new hopes and dreams. Running into time for cuddles, and togetherness and slow roasted lamb suppers.
I know that might sound strange, but makes so much sense to me.
Today was a day I was going to do some art, (because there has been pathetically little art happening except for my therapy journal), and after I did the running around for speaker wire and bread and a stop off at the bed store to check out the prices of a possible new guest room bed, and after a lunch with R and starting a turkey and bean soup for supper, after all this I thought I would sit down with a cup of tea and do some art work and R said, “hey, shall we go for a walk?” And that was about the extent of my big breakthrough let’s-do-some-art day.
So I will present this little oil-paper-board-ink collage. It’s called “Waiting for the Muse”. This kind of thing is what I usually do when I have no inspiration…which is something that also comes with time and contemplation.
We all have to take some time here and there.
Every year I make a New Year’s resolution to stop running out of time and start running into it instead.
I may as well keep that tradition going 😀
